Reasons to welcome a Vermont New Year

I've lived in several states and find it hard to argue with most of what I see on this list.

Terrorist may poison the food supply (but the food companies already have)

Always on the terror streak, the mainstream media is now warning Americans that terrorists may strike the food supply by dumping poison into restaurant salad bars and buffets, for example. CBS News broke the story, quoting anonymous "intelligence" sources who insist that terrorists might use ricin or cyanide to poison foods in salad bars.

I have news for CBS, the federal government, and the terrorists: If you really want to poison the U.S. food supply, just use aspartame. It causes neurological disorders and yet remains perfectly legal to dump into foods such as diet sodas and children's medicines. You don't even have to dump it into the food supply in secret, either: You can do it right out in full view of the public. Heck, you can even list this chemical right on the ingredients label!

Or get into the MSG business. MSG, which is often hidden on "natural" foods under an ingredient called yeast extract, is a potent neurotoxin that promotes obesity and even cancer, according to some experts. Feed people enough MSG and they'll probably die of cancer sooner or later, and that counts toward the goal of terrorism too, doesn't it?

If you really want to get nasty and up the body count, start a hot dog company and dump sodium nitrite into your processed meat like all the other hot dog companies do. Sodium nitrite promotes aggressive cancers -- even in children -- and yet the USDA and FDA allow its use in the food supply (http://www.naturalnews.com/007133.html).

Better yet, feed the population genetically modified corn and then wait for the mutations to kick in. GMOs might actually be called a biological weapon because they cause so much harm to humans and the environment. (http://www.naturalnews.com/GMO.html)

Why be a terrorist when you can do so much more damage as a processed food company?

If you're a terrorist looking to poison the U.S. food supply, get in line, buddy! The food companies have beat you to it!

In the U.S. food supply right now, you can find toxic mercury, BPA, acrylamides, petrochemicals, dangerous preservatives, synthetic chemicals like aspartame, pesticide residues and artificial colors that alter brain function. The FDA doesn't seem to care about any of this, of course: All these poisons in the food supply are legal!

So here's a message to Al-Qaeda and all the other terrorists trying to kill Americans: Don't bother with bombs and missiles... just get into the processed food business!

Or, heck, if you really want to kill Americans with poison, get into the cancer industry! The "Al-Qaeda Cancer Clinic" could really rack up some body bags by doing what all the other cancer clinics do: Inject patients with chemotherapy and watch them die (http://www.naturalnews.com/029996_c...).

Seriously, if you want to kill Americans, all you really need to do is keep supporting conventional medicine and the FDA with its do-nothing position on dangerous chemicals that threaten the health of Americans right now. FDA-approved drugs kill well over 100,000 Americans each year -- a statistic that dwarfs the body count of any terrorist group.

Come to think of it, how do we know the FDA isn't already being run by terrorists? Their actions, which blatantly endanger American lives, are entirely consistent with the aims of a terrorist organization. (http://www.naturalnews.com/001894.html)

By the way, this is all depicted in a CounterThink cartoon I created in 2006 called The Food Terrorists: http://www.counterthink.com/The_Foo...

This cartoon anticipated today's terror news alerts by four years. That's because when it comes to the U.S. government's rhetoric on terrorism, it's not that difficult to see where they're taking it.

Want to know what the next four years will bring us? I'll soon be publishing a list of predictions for 2011 and beyond. Watch NaturalNews.com for that announcement.

In the mean time, you might want to steer clear of FDA-approved foods and drugs, because you just never know what's really in them.

Vermont drafts food sovereignty resolution to protect health, food freedom

Friday, December 24, 2010 by: Jonathan Benson

In response to the recent passage of "food safety" bills S. 510 and corresponding H.R. 2751, the Vermont Coalition for Food Sovereignty has drafted its own resolution called "The Vermont Resolution for Food Sovereignty." Crafted to declare and protect the food and health freedom rights of all Vermont citizens, the resolution is essentially a warning to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that it does not have jurisdiction over the food choices of the People of Vermont.

The resolution declares that food freedom is a "fundamental prerequisite to life," and that individuals have every right to save seeds, grow what they wish, and buy and sell the fruits of their labor without interference from an over-zealous, tyrannical government. And if any federal official tries to infringe on these rights, the People "shall resist any and all" of them.

Additionally, the resolution declares that, on the basis of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the People of Vermont completely reject any and all "Federal decrees, statutes, regulations or corporate practices that threaten our basic human right to save seed, grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products within the State of Vermont."

The recently-passed "Food Safety Modernization Act" essentially hands over control of the nation's food supply to the FDA. The legislation gives the agency free reign to mandate food recalls at will and require even small producers to jump through burdensome regulatory hoops in order to buy and sell their goods. The entire scheme has nothing to do with food safety and everything to do with giving the FDA more control over the food supply.

The Vermont Coalition for Food Sovereignty is encouraging concerned citizens to review the resolution and encourage their local and state politicians to co-sponsor it, both in Vermont and in other states.

Rutland Sheriff Unveils New Iris Scanner


Article published Jan 25, 2010
Long eye of the law
Sheriff unveils new iris scanner.
By Brent Curtis Staff Writer
The Rutland County Sheriff’s Department is putting the “eye” in “identification.”

The department recently became the first law enforcement agency in Vermont to acquire an iris scanner which photographs the characteristics of a person’s eyes and records them in a national database used to track everyone from children and Alzheimer’s patients to inmates and sexual offenders.

“No two are alike even in twins,” Rutland County Sheriff Steve Benard said. “After 9/11 the (National Sheriffs’ Association) found the most accurate form of identification to be the iris scan.”

With the help of a $10,000 grant from the NSA, Benard’s department was able to buy the scanner — which looks like a box with a mirrored, eye-shaped camera mounted on a tripod — and the software that allows the department to access the database.

Benard said his department won’t be ready to use the new technology for a few weeks. But once it’s ready to go, the sheriff said he hopes residents and other police agencies will see the value of the eye scanner.

While iris scans will never identify crime scene evidence in the way that fingerprints can — no one leaves their iris prints at the scene of a crime — Benard and representatives from the company helping to train him to use the scanner said prints of the eye are more accurate forms of identification and easier to use in the majority of cases.

For example, fingerprints of children can be less reliable, especially for young children whose unique fingerprints haven’t fully developed, according to Patricia Lawton, a representative with BI2 Technologies, which developed the scanner and maintains the database.

“There’s not a lot of ridge detail in children’s fingerprints,” she said. “There’s a fair amount of margin of error and some of the prints are unreadable.”

Benard, who said he plans to make the scanner available to schools and other organizations that work with children, said the NSA, which houses the database, also allows individuals to expunge their iris scans when they turn 18 years old — an option that children whose fingerprints are on record don’t receive.

For the elderly, Benard said the scanner would be an aid for people in advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

“Say there’s someone in Poultney with Alzheimer’s who shows up in Rutland where no one has a clue who they are. All you have to do is scan their eyes for an answer,” he said.
Performing a field check would also be simpler than checking fingerprints, the sheriff said, once the department installs software in its cruisers allowing them to take the scanner on the road.

In other parts of the country, the iris scanner has been put to use to identify inmates and sexual offenders — options Benard said he’s not ready to implement yet but would like to in the future.

“It could be handy with sex offenders in particular,” Benard said. “Last year, we had two out-of-state sex offenders who moved into the county using fictitious addresses. The nice thing about iris scans is that they’re tracked nationwide so if someone is on a sex offender registry in Santa Cruz they can’t disappear by coming to Vermont.”
